    Question Who do you use to host your web site?

    I'm looking at web site host services. I've come across InMotion, JustHost, GoDaddy and a few others. I've read some good and bad reviews but they're inconsistent.

    I was just wondering which hosting services do people use and what are some good ones.

    I use iPower (Domain Names and Web Hosting by IPOWER). It's like $100 a year (+$9 for domain privacy). I don't have any complaints, but I don't use most of their services...my website is fairly basic.

    $100 a year seems kinda steep. The ones I was looking at were around $7 a month. Do you remember any start up fees?

    I've used this host for years. I have 5 domains running with them and have never had a problem.

    This is the package I run:

    I have to use the Windows hosting version. Do they offer web page design utilities?

    For one site, we use A+Hosting.
    If their email servers were any slower, they'd be Timex Sinclairs.

    For my other site, I host it on a friends server.
    Sorry.

    I see lots of people recommending not hosting with the same firm you buy your domain name through.. I build and host with Yahoo, but don't leave any domains with them after they cancelled a domain I'd purchased from them prevously at the same time I cancelled the hosting for that website with them.

    - I've been reading recently complaints that searching for a domain name's availability on GoDaddy often finds it's been taken a few hours later by someone else. Then it's available after about 5 days.

    GoDaddy is very unethical. And yes, they do hawk domain names and then try to sell them back to you. If you are gonna do a search on domain names it is best to do it with someone you know and trust. I use a friend in St Pete.
